En trappa upp (upstairs): Nightclub
This a place to go to if you want to dance and get drunk, or not. Most of the locals will be drunk to very drunk but I havent seen any fights yet though.
Go there when there will be somebody's playing live because otherwise it's a risk it will be empty, and you can only go on the weekends, preferably saturdays.
Dress Code: Go as you are.
